Join 100 Transportation Directors
Join 100 Pupil Transportation Directors as they discuss the importance of leadership and culture to organizational success and growth, a topic that has never been so timely. Staff shortages among drivers and maintenance technicians continue to adversely affect school district transportation departments and school bus contractors alike.
The solution to engaging and retaining the right employees—and ridding your organizations of toxic employees—is not simply about offering potlucks and ping-pong tables.
If you are a registered STN EXPO full conference attendee, there’s no additional cost to you, your municipality or your organization to participate in this exclusive event! Apply now for one of the limited 100 spots. Meals, snacks and participation expenses are covered by STN.

The Peak Performance Mindset
Experience the transformation from the ordinary to the outstanding
Wayne brings audience volunteers on stage and uses hypnosis and other mind-expanding techniques to demonstrate the power of words and the effects of repeated visualizations on the subconscious mind.
Wayne reveals the secrets of top performers and shares simple, practical techniques and language patterns that the audience can immediately start using to internalize their goals and clear their subconscious blocks.
With a shift in their mindset and emotional state, every participant, whether on stage or in the audience, becomes equipped to elevate their performance and create new results in their personal lives and workplaces.

How will transportation directors be selected?
Conference attendees will register like normal, identifying their interest in participating at the TD Summit. Then the STN team will carefully vet all applicants to validate their credentials, since we have a 100 person maximum limit.
When will our two reps talk to the transportation directors?
During the event, your reps will be engaged at the ice breaker and also during the problem solving-portion of the speaker’s discussion and interaction. It will take place within the mini-groups, with the networking breaks also providing interactions.
What is going to keep the directors there?
The content, speaker and peer discussions. It’s more about a team problem solving experience with focused meaningful content. Additionally, food and beverage will be provided during the breaks and cocktail hour.
Are our reps required to attend all of the sessions?
Yes, they are an important part of the discussion, problem solving and networking.
How do reps interact with the transportation directors during these sessions?
Discussions will take place within small mini-groups of three to four transportation directors and one assigned vendor partner. Each group of transportation directors rotates after each speaker session from table to table, providing guaranteed time together. Your two reps would be assigned a specific table, such as #1 & #7.
